Abecedario del Cuerpo Imaginado is on its third printing! Discover its new cover as well as an epilogue recounting the success of the book since its first edition! The ABC of the imagined body is a work that with only 27 haikus and 459 syllables is able to talk to the reader of the lucidity and complexity of the human body, and how it fits into the world as part of the nature. Since the haiku is a synthetic poetical form, the writer Mar Benegas gets rid of anything unnecessary leaving only the exact words, that become flash of understanding, the promise of something important. Guridi’s illustrations are based on the relationship between body and nature, so that flowers, leaves, blades of grass become clothes for the human being and for the emotions that compose his life. This book, that has a Japanese binding, also includes a short text where the writer explains the essence of haikus and also gives to the reader some instructions to write his or her own haikus.
